For the rate calculation, dropouts from the graduating class include students from the class that dropped out at any point during the four years. District figures may include youth who graduated while in a district-operated high school, vocational-technical school, special education school, alternative school and instructional program in a nondistrict-operated institution. State-wide figures include youth who graduated but were not counted within a district due to being enrolled less than 30 days before graduation. 
* = No high school in the district.
** = District merged with county school district.
